UWinnipeg chemist Dr. Chris Wiebe and physicist Dr. Blair Jamieson received Research Manitoba 2020 CFI Innovation Fund Matching Program grants, supporting Manitoba’s vital contribution to innovative, multi-institutional world-class research.

Intermediate Detector for the Hyper-Kamiokande Neutrino Oscillation Experiment

Dr. Blair Jamieson received a $174,500 Research Manitoba 2020 CFI Innovation Fund Matching Program grant for his project, Intermediate Detector for the Hyper-Kamiokande Neutrino Oscillation Experiment. This adds to the major funding announcement that took place in early March.

The opportunity for Manitoba scientists to take a leading role in Hyper-K, this CFI project will play an important part in maintaining Manitoba leadership in fundamental science. This benefits Manitobans and researchers across Canada.

“The UWinnipeg facility will allow local researchers to contribute to large international detectors like the IWCD in a meaningful way,” said Jamieson. “This will put Manitoba on the map as a place with world-class particle physics researchers. I’m excited that the Winnipeg neutrino physics group and the students working in my group will be able to have such a large impact on this international project.”

This Research Manitoba funding is supported by an annual grant from the Manitoba Department of Economic Development and Jobs.
